Agreed. It's a little too steep for me though...I like the idea of Staal, but not that much. Plus, he only has 1 year left on his contract--and he will be UFA. You're basically talking about a rental with a chance of re-signing, but no guarantee.

This is a guy with a career high 50 points. Sure he could do more...but regardless how amazing he is defensively, that's a lot to give up for someone who probably tops out around 60 points.

Stafford + Pysyk, picks to even out. Stafford gives them a scoring winger, Pysyk is a top prospect at a position we are well stocked. If they want Roy to maintain the center depth, then they can add something to even out.
